GAME STORY:

After defeating the Laurentian Voyageurs at home Wednesday evening in first round play-off action, the Gee-Gees travelled to Toronto Saturday evening to face the No. 2 OUA East Ryerson Rams in an OUA quarter final match-up.

 

 Once again, the Gee-Gees proved they were not ready to end the season yet, as they went on to defeat the Rams 84-74.

 

The Gee-Gees split their two games with the Rams earlier this season, defeating them 60-58 on the road and falling 80-76 to the Rams at home.

 

It was a close game throughout, with the Gee-Gees leading by five points after the first half. The Gee-Gees stepped things up in the last quarter, outscoring the Rams 26-19, to secure a 10 point win.

 

Third-year guard Émilie Morasse (Québec, Qué.) led the Gee-Gees in scoring with 21 points, 7 rebounds. First-year forward Kizzy Clarke (Brossard, Qué.) was also a leading force for the Gee-Gees, contributing 19 points, 4 rebounds.

 

The Gee-Gees shot 51.0% from the floor and 61% from the three point line with the Rams shooting 30.4 from the floor and 22.6% from the three point line.

 

“The girls really stepped it up tonight,” said Gee-Gees head coach Andy Sparks. “It was a really good win.”

 

The Gee-Gees now face the cross-town rival Carleton Ravens (18-4 OUA, 1-0 play-off) Friday, February 27, at Carleton in the OUA semi-final game. Game-time is yet to be determined.

“It was a high scoring game tonight; this is going to be something we’ll have to improve on for Friday’s game against Carleton,” added Sparks.
